Camosun expresses its sorrow and stands alongside the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc

Camosun College is horrified by the news that the remains of 215 children have been found in the grounds of the former Kamloops Residential School, which sat on the traditional territory of the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc. Our hearts go out to the families and communities who were and are directly affected by this news and by the original loss of their children. We are all affected. This affirms Camosun’s commitment to redressing the impact of our shared history. In memory of these children, Camosun flags on both campuses will be lowered.

School of Access

I have been teaching in the English Language Development Department at Camosun since 2015. Previously I worked at Global Village Victoria, and overseas in Japan, Mexico, the UK, and the Czech Republic.

My special interests as a language instructor are developing engaging, real-world curricula, assessment, and teaching pronunciation. My primary research focus is the pragmatics of job interviews and other high-stakes conversations.

It is a dream job for me to be working with international and immigrant learners at Camosun, and to help them reach their language goals for work and community life. It is also a pleasure to work with and learn from so many talented and passionate colleagues.

Courses Teaching/Taught:
